IN THE WORD

IN MY LIFE
I’m not going to lie – as much as I love traveling, it takes so much work to get ready to leave and there’s so much work to catch up on once we return that it wears me out.

And while I thought we kept a mild schedule in Chicago (not staying up too late, pushing too hard or doing too many activities), both kids ended up getting sick on the way home. Of course, a steady diet of Chicago staples like pizza, popcorn and Italian beef probably didn’t help our nutrition either…but boy was it tasty!

If you need us, we’ll just be over here catching up on sleep and work (and reliving all our memories of trying to chase down Michael Jordan, of course 😉

For those of you asking about our favorite Chicago restaurants, here’s a quick list of those chains and what we love there:
* Portillo’s (Italian Beef, Chicago hot dog)
* Baker’s Square (French Silk Pie)
* Pizza (Don’t ask me to choose between Gino’s East, Giordano’s & Lou Malnati’s)
* Garrett Popcorn (The “Chicago Mix” is cheese & caramel, but I just like the caramel)

PRAYER FOCUS: Reliable
I pray that each of you are reliable and have those you can depend on in your life.
